27 million players every day . More than 70 million viewers . Those are just two of the impressive figures that help us understand not the phenomenon but the reality of e-sports and streaming video games . And although YouTube have potential and is relevant in that area, yesterday officially presented Youtube Gaming , a division of its portal focused exclusively on streaming games and with the target heat to become the reference that right now is not yet. We have gotten fully into Youtube Gaming to tell you what it has to offer, what we have found and what weapons Google plans to deal with Twitch , recently purchased by Amazon. These are the affordable gaming Laptops under £1000 in uk which are affordable.

It's not a new platform, it's a Youtube version of games Although it has a gateway separate from the main Youtube, the first thing to say about Youtube Gaming is that it is YouTube . 100% Google has not created a new online video platform but has customized in the form of a new service the contents that we can already find on YouTube. other gaming laptop under £1500

Any of the videos that we filter within the Gaming platform is actually a video that was found, found and found on YouTube. But Google has customized it with an interface focused on the visual , with a dark design that facilitates the viewing in generous size (there is no cinema mode and the one that comes by default occupies the majority of the screen) and in which the highlights of the Player is the simplification of the interaction with the video, with a new button to add the channel as a favorite to our collection, as we will see below. With this design where the video predominates, the sections of information about what we are seeing, related videos or comments are on the right side. If we are playing a live broadcast, the comments tab automatically becomes a chat with other users who are watching the same as us.

That it is the same service we can easily verify. In fact, when one has seen a video within Gaming, it appears as played on Youtube generalist. But not everything is shared. Something that is completely separate is the management of subscriptions and playlists. The channels that we mark as favorites or follow in Gaming will not be answered in our lists or subscriptions in generalist Youtube. Nor vice versa.

Youtube Gaming also has application , but for now not in all markets. For example, if you try to download it in Spain, it is not available. The fact is that to access Youtube Gaming from a smartphone, we must do so by activating the desktop mode, since otherwise it does not allow us to access and forces us to download the application. Channels and games, the basis of the Youtube Gaming experience Those who access Youtube Gaming are aware that they want to have a couple of clicks on their favorite games and their favorite creators. That's why Gaming bases its interface on those two options. There is also no search engine , with suggestions for channels and games.

In each of these main pages of games or creators we find different tabs with more or less classified content. Those tabs are different depending on the game . In the case of some popular as Minecraft we find the largest of options, with information about the game, channels related to which we have subscribed, direct to which we can join, popular content, area for gameplays, reviews and even official content of the own developer. In other cases the options are more limited, as we can see below with the game Madden.

Here I would have opted for an exclusive area or independent service directly associated with Gaming, but in both cases the system takes us to classic Youtube and the already known options to upload a video or start a live broadcast. There we already found the general configuration based on Creator Studio and in which, for example, to start broadcasting live, we need to configure the coding software. Among the options the most useful for this type of event is to enable the recording , so that someone who arrives late to your broadcast can go back up to four hours in the broadcast, something in which Youtube Gaming can take advantage of Switch. During live broadcasts, we can go back to any point of the broadcast at any time, and it will be enough to click on the Live icon to return to the broadcast in real time.
